Javier is a singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist who has been playing guitar since he was 12. Born in Peru, his biggest influences were the alternative rock from the 80s and 90s, and the "trova" music so popular in South America.
Later he moves to Italy where he polished his piano skills. The vibrant Bologna sees his first performances in Europe.
Motivated by its vibrant music scene, he moves to Ireland where he joins a songwriting programme at BIMM which also connects him with local bands like Darwin's Daughter and NIMF with whom he collaborates as guitarist and drummer.
In 2017, he jumps to the Dublin scenarios as a solo artist and releases his first single, Talking Dogs, a dreamy indie song about goodbyes.
Since then, Javier has continued to shape his sound and carve a space for himself in the Dublin scene. Both as solo, and with his power trio band, he has delivered over a 100 powerful performances in legendary venues like Sin É, The Workman's Club and Fibber Magees.
His music can be described as rich in harmonies, with delicate atmospheric guitar chords, and lyrics that invite us to a journey of emotions and make us reflect on everyday life.
In 2021, with the help of Dublin producer and BIMM tutor, Tully Gun, he is preparing the release of "No Sorrow", a punchy yet introspective song about resilience and hope. He recently won a contest by UK production house PresentDayProduction to have his song "All My Life" produced by Sam Reck with support of top UK musicians, which will be released in 2022.
